11:18 pm
of country most popular radio programs laura ingram show, she is a fox news contributor, a delight to have you here. first, your reaction to the news about terry mccauliffe. a clinton friend, long time friend. and associate? >> one would think that mccauliffe having seen everything that has befall inthe clintons and associates, would not be involved in anything, criminal or untoward, i don't know what this investigation is really all about. news just broke. but, as far as political implication for hillary clinton, anything that distracts from her message, what she hopes will be a positive, pro-woman, bridge bacbring back the '90s economy message is not good, we'll see where this goes, but what this does is brings you back to '90s scandals, not
11:19 pm
just the women and all that. but others, in the clinton administration which a whole generation of americans is not familiar with. it reminds me of old home week with the clintons, all these people are connected to clinton they seem too have problems, this just one other, we'll see where it goes, but it might not go anywhere. lou: that is right. fact is that the attorney for governor mccauliffe said they have not contacted him, which also could be a source of anxiety for mrs. clinton, she said she has not been contacted either. >> remember, lou, also, in course of a vile investigation . -- criminal investigation, maybe this is something bigger about the clinton foundation,
11:20 pm
we know there are questions about tax exempt status, and so forth, there might be something else going on, subterrainian movement of justice department to get some cooperation from mccauliffe, there could be other layers to this. lou: a many-layered organization with a complex structure. and purpose, since by all reports about 10% of the money it raises has gone to -- if you will, charitable causes and good work. the instagram message talking about reliving scandals in past with women who were allegedly sexually assaulted or raped. your thoughts. >> i think it is effective, it is one short video there is a entire generation of american women who are not familiar with what happened at hands of
11:21 pm
bill cli clinton. and not just hillary, not for being an enabler, and forgiving him, a lot of people upset about, that but it is what hillary did to the women this will come back, i think trump's way of saying just try me, there is a lot more we'll throw out there. as she tries to make a populous pitch for american economic renewal, it is effective. lou: positive on polling is rising and her numbers seem to be softening. in most recent poll, same time, the establishment suddenly is rallying around donald trump, rising numbers every week, at same time paul ryan, with this interview in politico. i swear, i cannot tell if he is a frustrated priest, i
11:22 pm
cannot make him out, he is utterly, haughty, and i think just, disconnected from what is happening around him. >> i think it at some point it is curious to what is going on here. i can see time passing not a big deal, but the longer this goes on. more interview, you give, more conflicted you seem, and the party has moved on, 8 out of 10 republicans say, it is time to unify, people like romney, i think that ryan will come around, romney could have been secretary of state in trump administration, he could have had a powerful role, now he will have no influence, i don't think that paul ryan wants to go there. i don't think that will be good for paul ryan's future, voters have a long memory, if they think that you, you know
11:23 pm
sabotage trump or tried, that is not going to sit well with people, i am hopeful, i think that ryan will come around. lou: i hope your hopefulness is rewarded. because, he could make the party look so much better by himself, looking less small than he does right now. >> i think more that trump, starting to rise in polls, you will see a lot of these -- hesitations disappear. winning has a way of doing that to people. people come around the higher your numbers go. lou: littl politico made is sound like a strategy played out by paul ryan about his chances in 2020, that is the biggest bunch of poppycock that i have seen, as to a motivation, he will not be supported by anyone of substance by offending the party. >> does not help him in 2020. i don't know -- how does that bullpen him in 2020?
11:24 pm
if that is the strategy, i don't know if it is, but, that is it, that is not good. that is a dumb strategy, you will turn off more people. lou: is a lot of dumb in that town right now. >> a lot of people who missed boat, they are still on the dock, and now the passengers on the better waves good-bye. lou: adios. >> see you later. lou: vote in our poll, will trump's choice of vice president determine you vote for him. cast your vote on twitter, we appreciate it follow me on twitter. like me on facebook, and on instagram. lynches to everything at >> a traffic stop in milwaukee . it turned out to be anything but routine. catching a moment a woman decided to make a break for it by throwing her car into reverse. slamming into the squad car behind her.
11:25 pm
and actually hitting two of the officers, surrounding the car. two, the woman's passenger were injured, instead of a ticket, she now faces 45 years in prison. 45 years. >> up next, 8 years ago hillary clinton struggled to settle on a slogan, she tried, in to win. working for change. working for you. the change we need. now, now she has unveiled a new slogan. i'll tell but it in my commentary next, much more ahead. stay with us, we'll be right stay with us, we'll be right back. when they thought they should westart saving for retirement.le then we asked some older people when they actually did start saving.
11:26 pm
this gap between when we should start saving and when we actually do is one of the reasons why too many of us aren't prepared for retirement. just start as early as you can. it's going to pay off in the future. if we all start saving a little more today, we'll all be better prepared tomorrow. prudential. bring your challenges. a combination of see products.. and customers. every on-time arrival is backed by thousands of od employees, ...who make sure the millions of products we ship arrive without damages. because od employees treat customer service... our most important delivery. od. helping the world keep promises.

11:30 pm
and external ones, i know that slogans come and go, but when i look at where we are, we need to unify the country issue we're stronger together. lou: as you surmised, a new campaign slogan it is, stronger together. he repeated that slogan 5 times. she must believe as she repeats it enough, the divide in democratic party will disappear, and bernie sanders will suddenly drop out all of his supporters embrace her? perhaps. clinton also criticized donald trump's make america great man against slogan, perhaps hillary came up with her own slogan on capitol hill, when she proclaimed before congress, what difference does it make? that slowing know would work
11:31 pm
with all of her -- that slogan in my opinion would work with all of her scandals and misstep missteps. our quote of the evening, quote our fbi director, this on what does matter. in view of james comey, who said, did i seize an opportunity to do something for people with the talents i was lucky enough to be given? did i make a difference in the lives of people who needed me? on what matters? we're coming right back. >> donald trump is interviewing for a running mate. was his meeting with senator bob corker a sign that trump is narrowing his selection for vice president. >> i have no reason, what so ever to believe that i'm being considered forever a position like that. lou: who should trump's vice president be? ed rollins and michael goodwin with us next.
